UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a server to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant running of all the machines located there.

Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
